Gout can cause sporadic bouts of pain in the joints and in areas where gout materializes. It develops when urate crystals form in the tissue. In a healthy body, uric acid is filtered by the kidneys and excreted in urine. People who develop gout have elevated levels of uric acid in their blood.
Bursitis and Tendinitis both can cause discomfort and pain that make it difficult for you to perform certain activities. They also tend to become worse as you age. Acute trauma can occur as a result of damage and the repair process. Older individuals may acquire these conditions due to changes in the body.
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the immune system. Also known as systemic lupus erythematosus, it can affect the joints, the skin or the organs. It is a serious condition that requires care and supervision from a physician to be managed effectively.
Osteoporosis is a condition where bones become weak and brittle, increasing the risk of fractures. It's often symptomless until a fracture occurs. Risk factors include age, genetics, gender, menopause, low body weight, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, alcohol, and certain medications. Treatment includes medication, supplements, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle. Early detection and treatment can help prevent further bone loss and reduce the risk of fractures.
Myositis is a chronic condition that causes inflammation and degeneration of the muscle tissues. There are two common types of this disorder: polymyositis results in weak muscles, while dermatomyositis results in weak muscles accompanied by a rash. In some cases, people are born with the condition because of underlying problems. In other cases, it is triggered later in life.
Back pain is one of the most common ailments. It interferes with work, reduces a person’s ability to enjoy life, and may lead to complications that can worsen the pain.
Polymyalgia Rheumatica/Giant Cell Arteritis
Being able to wake up in the morning and move around without pain and discomfort is something that most people take for granted. When dealing with debilitating musculoskeletal diseases like Giant Cell Arteritis and Polymyalgia Rheumatic, rising with little to no pain is rare. Giant Cell Arteritis is also referred to as temporal arteritis or even cranial arteritis. The disorder causes the arteries to become inflamed. Giant Cell Arteritis can also affect the arteries in a person’s arms and neck. As the arteries become inflamed, they get narrower, which makes it difficult for blood to flow adequately. If left untreated, this condition can result in permanent tissue damage.
Scleroderma is a group of diseases that causes a person’s skin or other connective tissues in the body to become hard and tight. In addition to affecting the skin, scleroderma may damage your internal organs, attack blood vessels and even disrupt your digestive track.
Vasculitis affects the walls of the blood vessels. It causes them to become thicker, weaker, narrower and scarred. The restricted blood flow resulting from this disorder is very dangerous and can result in organ and tissue damage. The inflammation of the blood vessels may affect a single organ or attack multiple organs at the same time.
Metabolic Bone Diseases
Metabolic bone diseases are disorders of bone strength that causes brittle and weak bones that break easily. There are numerous types of metabolic bone disease, but osteoporosis is the most common. Rickets is another common metabolic bone disease that is found in children and results in bones that are too soft.
